Here is another delicious but super simple recipe for you guys! This salad basically consists from 3 main ingredients: cucumber, shrimps and avocado. You do not have even try to make some extra dressing for it. Simply squeeze lime (instead of lemon). It nicely adds that zing to the salad while also helping to keep avocado green and vibrant. Buttery avocado, crunchy seedless cucumber and flavored shrimps make a great mix of textures and flavors. I tend to use fresh shrimps while cooking as often as I can and I should advise you to do the same.
